Vision 2020 is an initiative of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB), for the global elimination of avoidable blindness (by the year 2020) - 'to eliminate the main causes of avoidable blindness in order to give all people in the world, particularly the millions of needlessly blind, the right to sight'. It is a global programme that has been developed as a partnership between the IAPB member NGOs, the WHO, and WHO member governments or ministries of health. It was launched by the WHO in 1999.
